Hi, I've started on Mirt 30mg per night, about a week ago. Prev on Duloxetine but had really bad sweating side effects which i'm pleased to say is going!! So far I've had a max of 2 hours sleep per night. I'm on a cocktail of pain relief meds for ? narrowing of the spine ? - OxyContin 40mg twice daily, upto 160mg dihydracodiene p/d, migraine prevention meds, anti inflammatories, stomach liners and few other bits and bobs.
I slept ok before apart from waking up in pain with my hip/knees and calves and could usually get back to sleep.
It's driving me potty just feel awful with horrible IBS flare up, constant headaches, chest feels rough as a bears bum, Been really, really hungry - was eating ice creams at 3am!
Anyone else with similar experiences with Mirt which was issued when having depression as part of the chronic pain cycle (ie pain - lack of sleep due to pain - tiredness - depression).
Going back to the Gp's today but as I've only had been taking it a week prob get fobbed off with "give it more time". If its a know problematic medication want to get something else of prescription asap as im a single mum to 3 kids and working part time. Fingers crossed MRI scan shows something to the Neurologist in a few weeks.
